Route between Jackson and Lake Placid?


our holiday will start next saturday and now our detail planning works. We will travei for three weeks through the New England states.

Can anybody recommend a route betwenn Jackson and Keene Valley with the car (one day trip).

Our plan is to drive a nice route through the area and to take some intersting sights/cities/falls/nature. So do you have any idea which is such a scenic drive with some nice breaks? We have GPS, but do not want to take the shortest route. Would you recommend to take the ferry?

And can anybody recommend nice moderat hiking trails for 3 hours?

Thanks a lot.

If you include Lake Placid, any route that you take will be scenic. Sorry I can't be more helpful with specific advice on routes from Jackson.

If you are planning to hike on the weekends, you may have trouble finding parking at the trailheads.

I suggest a hike from Adirondack Loj to either Marcy Dam or around Heart Lake, or up Mt. Jo.

Another really great option (if you have time constraints) is to drive up Whiteface Mountain.

Enjoy your trip. It will be a scenic journey!
